Leaders, happy holidays! And around this time of year, many of you really don't have time to think straight. This, of course, means all of your intentions to give employees time just went out the window. I mean, it's budget season, and the board needs a year-end report, the Q4 sales blitz just started...whatever it is that's making your end-of-year hectic, it's likely taking away from engaging your employees on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, your employees aren't buying it. They still need you to lead, pay attention to, and develop them during these busy times. I've got good news for you! A great way to give your employees what they need to succeed, even during Q4 nuttiness, are short, effective 1:1 meetings. If you've got 5 minutes to spare, which we know you do, then you can do this.
Also, to me, an important step in creating a great employee development strategy begins with your simple 1:1 conversations. Since employee development is a year-round priority that impacts retention, engagement and results, any tool in your arsenal to keep conversations front and center are a must.
In this Saba Talent Vlog, I'll share with you simple tips to make your 1:1 meetings effective so your team can be more productive.
